As many of you may know, I am from the amazing city of Cambridge and Boston. I claim both as my residency because well, Cambridge is an eye’s shot away from the big B and I also spent 8 years of my life in Boston for high school and college. My weekend routine was grabbing an ice cream at Toscanini’s in Central Square and promenading past MIT, over the Mass Ave bridge on my way to Newbury Street. In my eyes they are the same city, Cambridge is just an extended area beyond the Charles River! Tell any true Bostonian that and they will get extremely mad! Well I’ve got an answer for them – I’ll race you to Park St on the T! Good luck making it anywhere in less than 30 minutes on the Green Line – HAH!! As I sit here and reminisce about my favorite city, I can’t help but associate Cape Cod with my New England background.
I spent many summers visiting Cape Cod and my best friends live there now. There’s nothing quite like a Cape Cod summer; full of sunshine, parties and the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. Nautical trends are everywhere in Cape Cod and this two-piece reminds me of the quintessential Cape Cod outfit. I can see me rocking these sailor stripes in downtown Chatham or the vibrant town of Provincetown. Although there isn’t a beach for at least a 2-hour drive from Fayetteville, honestly I’m just happy I live near the ocean – I can’t Imagine life inland where it takes 8+ hours!
This lovely Nautical two-piece is from Fabulous Finds Boutique, which is owned by my friend Samantha, a fellow Style Collective girl! I love the nautical rope details of the straps and the flare of the shorts, giving it the appearance of a dress. If you scroll down to the bottom of this post you can shop my favorite nautical looks! I shot this look with the talented Matthew Wonderly who helped me transform downtown Fayetteville into a quaint little seaside town. My favorite shot is the on where I’m standing in front of a purple door – it reminds me of Cape Cod so much. All of my New England friends and family – I will be headed back home in the coming months. Stay tuned!
